The pics of this latest iPad 2 case are from a company called C & T Industry based in Guangdong, China.
In addition to the hole for a rear-facing camera at the top, the case also sports a speaker grille on the bottom rear side. Ideal for those that don’t necessarily like using headphones with their iPads in the comfort of their own home, yet want a better sound reproduction from their tablet.
The iPad 2 is also rumoured to feature a completely flat back (in the tradition of the iPhone 4) unlike the iPad’s slightly curved rear.
The new iPad is also rumoured to be 0.12 inches thinner than its predecessor, feature a higher-resolution screen and be capable of FaceTime video chat.
Additionally, some sources are suggesting the new iPad may have an SD card slot and a dual core processor
